Since I’ve been feeding this little guy around the clock, I have a never ending craving for cookies. I froze some chocolate chip cookie dough before he came, but I had a bit of time to whip up something different over the weekend. These flourless chocolate almond cookies turned out very good, and (comparatively) healthy too!
Are these not the most adorable cookies you have ever seen? I took a picture of these before they went in the oven just in case something terrible happened in there, but thank goodness, they came out looking just as good. And they are even fully edible! Although I don’t know how you could eat one, instead of just filling your pockets with them.
There is always such drama when baking a new recipe. Is the bottom getting too done? Is the top done enough? Are they going to dry out if I leave them in longer? Luckily, this drama had a happy ending. I used this recipe, except I added mini chocolate chips instead, for cuteness.
I like to show my love with baked goods. For our first birthday weekend of the season, we started with some fluffy biscuits for breakfast.
Next, we had some chocolate chip cookies for snacking.
And then we had our showstopper, a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
And now we need to stock up on Halloween candy.
Did you do any baking last weekend? We wanted to make a pie for the long weekend, and we finally decided on chocolate cream. I topped it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, and it looked really pretty, but everyone was so eager to dig in that I didn’t get a photo. It tasted even better than it looked!
